Dillon Dannis has lately been finding himself on the wrong path. Just a few months back he was arrested by police in New Jersey. A video went viral in September in which Dillon was getting mangled by the New Jersey Police. He was taken into custody by an officer outside of an establishment believed to be the Beachcomber Bar and Grill in Seaside Heights, N.J.
Though Dillon Danis is a world-renowned BJJ fighter, he always comes into the limelight because of his wrong actions and twitters call-outs. He is also famous for being the training partner of the MMA’s biggest superstar Conor McGregor. He is currently fighting for Bellator MMA and has gone 2-0 in the promotion with both of his wins coming by submission. He hasn’t fought in Bellator since June of 2019. Still, he keeps himself in the news by calling out fighters who are not even in his promotions.
He recently got a huge exposure during his beef with the celebrity boxer Jake Paul. The duo engaged multiple times on social media and also have had funny altercations. He is now recovering from a few injures and is looking forward to resuming his Bellator MMA career soon.
